Welcome to Key West, Florida. If you have never been here before, you are in for a real treat. There are Key West attractions for everyone! Some of the most popular Key West tourist activities on the water include dolphin encounters, kayaking the backcountry, diving and snorkeling at Ft. Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas or renting a boat at a Key West marina to explore on your own. On land–shopping, museums, art galleries, tours, theaters and more await you. Or you can simply relax in the sand or pool at your Key West hotel, or on Duval Street with a cocktail in hand.
Key West is part of the Florida Keys archipelago. It is also Florida’s southernmost point, lying roughly 90 miles north of Cuba. Famed for its pastel-hued, conch-style houses, it is accessible from the mainland via the Overseas Highway. It is known more for its coral reefs – destinations for diving and snorkeling – than for its beaches.
The bright turquoise waters are enough to draw people to Key West from around the world. For visitors who want to explore the waters surrounding the Island City, there are several boat rentals and charters. Ride through the shallow water and mangrove islands in the flats of Key West or venture into “blue waters” offshore.
Key West has some of the finest saltwater fishing around, whether you are an avid fly fisherman looking for the thrill of sight casting to tarpon as they cross a beautiful, sandy flat in the Key West backcountry, or offshore doing some deep sea fishing and thinking about a fresh seafood dinner at one of our fine Key West restaurants.
In Key West, the number of unique experiences you can have in one day is almost unbelievable. In a day, you can visit the Southernmost Point in the Continental U.S., take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, visit Ernest Hemingway’s House, eat fresh, off-the-boat seafood, drink at Florida’s oldest bar, and witness a world-renowned sunset.
